Blue Jays Fans Look Forward to Enhanced Accessibility in Rogers Centre Renovation

Accessibility improvements at Rogers Centre

Toronto baseball enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting the renovation of Rogers Centre, with hopes for an upgraded fan experience. Among those eagerly anticipating the changes is Aaron MacDonald, who plans to attend his first Blue Jays game in seven years. For MacDonald, who now relies on a wheelchair following an ATV accident, accessibility is a key concern. Reflecting on his last visit to the dome in 2017, MacDonald recalls the challenges he faced with sightlines and common areas and hopes for significant improvements.

With experiences at venues like Scotiabank Arena offering positive examples of accessible seating, MacDonald is optimistic about the changes at Rogers Centre. Notably, the removal of old pillars and the addition of new accessible seating options are seen as promising steps forward. MacDonald, who actively participates in accessibility advisory committees in Cape Breton, understands the complexities of renovating existing structures and will be closely scrutinizing the changes.
